Pauley Perrette recently took to social media where she accused her former NCIS co-star, Mark Harmon, of attacking her while she was part of the show.

Perrette also told her fans that she is terrified of Harmon and would never returned to the hit series.

Thus far, the lead star of NCIS and CBS have not commented on the situation, but a source close to him spoke to the media and said he is furious.

According to Radar Online , Harmon wants the network to make Perrette stop talking and ruining his reputation.

The insider told the publication that during a conference call with CBS execs, Harmon reportedly said: “You’d better rein in Pauley Perrette — or I’ll sue her!”

The source who claimed to be in the room during the conversation added: “Mark told them he hadn’t hired a lawyer — yet but is ready to take legal action if she continues to claim he assaulted and intimidated her!”

The insider went on to explain: “Pauley has made it seem as if he got physical with her, which he insists he never did! Mark feels the whole thing has gotten out of hand and wants CBS to do something before he is forced to!”

Perrette said her viral tweet: “NO, I AM NOT COMING BACK! EVER! (Please stop asking?) I am terrified of Harmon and him attacking me. I have nightmares about it. I have a new show that is SAFE AND HAPPY! You’ll love it!#HappyPlace Love y’ all!”

One reaction to the drama read: “Mark is starting to have his PR people put out a positive story about him to counteract all the negative stuff. But he’s still looking for meaningful backup from the network!”

In late 2018, Perrette announced her departure and made a few accusations in a message that read: “There is a ‘machine’ keeping me silent and feeding FALSE stories about me. A very rich, very powerful publicity ‘machine’. No morals, no obligation to truth, and I’m just left here, reading the lies, trying to protect my crew. Trying to remain calm. He did it.” Perrette ended that stream of tweets with one final thought: “I’ve been supporting ant[i]-bullying programs forever. But now I KNOW because it was ME! If it’s school or work, that you’re required to go to? It’s horrifying. I left. Multiple Physical Assaults. I REALLY get it now. Stay safe. Nothing is worth your safety. Tell someone.”

Could those two make peace in the future?

    Ok so I will always always love PP but what she did and is saying is so down right low! I'm very disappointed. 1.) Ok yeah you would get upset about a dog bite, BUT if it's not you who got bit and the one who did isn't complaining then don't act like it's the end on the world. 2.) Wtf would you say Mark Harmon physically Attacked you. When she says that we're thinking like punching or like physically pushing hard down. But if he is just shoving her will he's walking to do something. THAT IS NOT PHYSICAL ASUALT!!! 3.) GROW UP. STOP ACTING LIKE A PRESCHOOLER!!

    She is always making something up, said her dad molested her as a child, yet says that he is the only one that supports her, she always talking about her dreams, which are as nutty as she is, no one dreams that much. She is always terrified about something, see her twitters about the earthquake, I am sure that it was all about her, she always uses the I word instead of us or we.

    Paulette Perrette thought she would get attention, poor pitiful me because she isn’t all that and it isn’t working, she needs to shut up. I will never watch anything she is in. But will always stand by Mark Harmon and his work!

    I'm really sick of her whining about something or someone! Every few weeks it's something new! Get over yourself! I guess she's gotta stay in the news some how.I think it's all crap, she's all crap! You don't stay on a show so long if the environment is so bad! Give it rest Pauley, promote your new show some other way people may want to watch it. I think your nuts!

    Mark Harmon never did anything to her. I have heard he pushed past her a couple of times, likely to get on with his role. Perhaps she was getting on his nerves with her demands about the dog and staff safety, which I believe wasn't as bad as was made out to be. Pauley suffers from PTSD which is what likely triggered her off. There are accusations by crew and staff of her being rude and even diva like. It was her decision to leave as well, she was never fired. I think Mark has done well so far not to have sued her. I would like to see a meeting set up with CBS and a couple of counsellers to see if they can resolve their spat. Its a shame after 15 years that two friends end their friendship like this.

    I will watch NCIS as long as Mark Harmon is on the other characters but he is the anchor. I miss others as they have left but it will be hard to watch if he ever leaves.

    I believe Mark. PP was Ok but the real star is Mark Harmon. I like all the other characters and they come and go ( and come back,!). And that's fine.. But MH is not too old for this show, excuse the heck out of us that are comfortable with aging. He's is excellent shape and still plays the role to perfection. When he goes, I might stay but not nearly the regular i have been. I hope he stays till season 20!

    We love Mark Harmon no matter what ugly things Pauley says if you are a fan of ncis you won't believe everything you read . There's always 2 sides to every story and just because Harmon decides to keep quiet doesn't make him guilty. Pauley needed to go at first it was ok but as years went by her so called gothic, school girl outfits needed to change. We wanted more scenes with the rest of the agents not her, less of her.

    Pauley is not saying what she said before. She is lying, it was Mark's dog who bit someone else that caused her to be against Mark. She is the problem. I won't watch anything she does anymore!

    The Network needs to put them together on a talk show and make the kiss and make up, this ever changing story and drama should not be tolerated by the Network. Someone in the Network needs to put their big boy pants on and make the decision.

      I don't think a Talk Show would be wise, you can't really say what you want with millions of eyes on you and it could get too nasty for viewers. I feel a closed meeting would be best.

    Has any other woman on this show said a word regarding Harmon's conduct towards them?? After so many years on the air, if an iota of scandal was true it would surely have gone public. Is PP trying to get publicity ?
